Viola Davis Hits NAACP Image Awards in a Revealing Herve LeRoux

One of the night's big winners, the "Help" star leaves little to the imagination with a plunging neckline that may go too far.

Viola Davis has been looking better and better at every awards show she's gone to. She's worn some really flattering colors and seems to know what what works for her. She's always the lady and always gives off an image of power and dignity. Of course, her speeches live up to that. So why is she showing off her very full bosom at the NAACP Awards?

She won the Image Award for her role in The Help on an evening where you are meant to be seen as an example to aspiring people everywhere to try and achieve their dreams. But the tangerine Herve LeRoux dress leaves nothing to the imagination. And while we can understand that the lady wants to look sexy, this borders on Dolly Parton-esque. It's just too much skin for an A-list actress to show. A bombshell like Amber Heard can pull off this look -- so can a Kim Kardashian. That's what they're there for.

But with an Oscar nom like Davis, it's a bit embarrassing. They should have asked LeRoux to close up the bodice of the dress somewhat. Maybe it was a last minute choice...

What do you think?
